I worked at Sony Pictures Imageworks for over ten years. The culture, the projects and the management was all excellent.
I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to work in a place that has wonderful projects and strong, confident management.
Pros
People, projects, environmental
Cons
Some long hours

Don't work here unless you have to! Sony Studios is a disaster. The people at the top treat everyone like a minion with no added value. There's no company moral and employees are just there for a paycheck. Of all the studios, this is the worst one to work at.
Pros
Nice lot and some pretty cool company perks
Cons
Everything. Stay away.

Sony is one of the greatest places I've worked. The company benefits are great and the company culture is inclusive. The only downside is that remote work is not encouraged and it would be nice to be able to have more flexible hours or the ability to work from home 1 or 2 days a week considering LA commute times.

It's a good company with a solid reputation and name in the business world. They offer steady growth albeit slow. Wonderful people can be found in different areas of business.

Company has very rich history especially Walkman & TVs. But now Sony does not create any product together. Each company creates individual products. No working together with sister companies to standout.

Sony is a great studio with good benefits. Salaries are Standard, promotions can be expected. They close between Christmas and New Years. Friendly staff and room for growth.

Good working environment but doesn't have a sense of opportunity for advancement in your career. Sony feels a little dated workplace culture-wise but it is mostly enjoyable. The campus is beautiful and the commissary offers good food options.

J'ai travaillé à distance pour Sony Pictures Classics, mes journées étaient organisées avec objectifs sur base journalière. Mes rapports avec l'employeur très détendus. Le salaire concordé pour ma mission est correct, à ce jour il ne m'a pas encore été versé.

The talented people who succeed at Sony have a positive attitude and a collaborative approach. Coming up with new ways to sell franchise properties is valued.

Nice atmosphere, great location. Nice benefits. It was a great place to come in daily. Cafeteria is not the best, but there are many other options around the lot.

Was a contractor here for a few months. Tools were outdated and job was pretty tedious, but people were pretty friendly and I liked working on the lot.

They typically close from Xmas to New Years. Allow remote work 2-4 times per month. You start with 2 weeks vacation, 2 weeks sick + a few floating holidays.
Pros
time off is excellent

IT is there to support business but not the focal point so if you are wanting to use the latest and greatest, this may not be the best fit so not for everyone

Generally a great company to work for. People are friendly. Fast paced work environment so often end up working long hours but if you enjoy your job, no issues. Overall culture is good.

Upper management never makes it easy. Constantly changing priorities and schedules. Rampant micro management and high turnover of department heads and key employees. Lots of burn out and a feeling of exhaustion with the current system.

Sony is truly honors being part of a company that believes workplace wellness can mean the difference between a job you love and one you, well, don't love. They work on improving the environment.
The company and its employees embrace change, accommodate new trends and technology, and incorporate new skills.


Positive Values

Compassion, respect, and understanding

A wonderful and interesting job with fantastic benefits can be ruined by a single person. A person who manages up, but does not support his/her staff is a negative mark on the entire company. A company which has a hiring department that knows about this, yet does nothing, despite complaints and mass exits, is just as guilty as the manager who wreaks havoc on the department.

There is no way to give high marks to a company that turns a blind eye to its upper management and never peeks under the covers. Everything else is great... (:))
Pros
Commissary, gym, health care
Cons
Faux work-life balance. All controlled by your singular boss. Lip service to the concept.

Past Production Intern here. The people I worked with were great and made me feel welcomed. Interns were offered training and informational meetings to learn more about positions within the company and industry that interested them.
